Enter the 2021 Polaris RZR Trail S 1000, the narrowest machine of its family, and at the same time, the one with the shortest wheelbase. 60 inches (152 cm) is the track width of the thing; a quite small number, but enough to give riders the ability to “manoeuvre in tight trails” without having to fear about the off-roader fitting on them.
With a weight of 651 kg (1,435 pounds), the new RZR gets its power from a 999cc double overhead cam twin-cylinder engine. It’s ready to take on pretty much everything nature has to throw at it, thanks to the 31.8 centimeters (12.5 inches) of ground clearance. The suspension system helps in that respect too, providing 31.1 cm (12.2 inches) of travel for the front gear and 33.5 cm (13.1 inches) for the one at the rear.
Polaris presented the RZR Trail S 1000 as it will sell it in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In these markets, the machine in its premium version comes equipped with LED headlights, electronic power steering, and adjustable two-inch Walker Evans Needle shocks, among other things.
The Trail S 1000 is part of the RZR family of side-by-side machines that have been rolling off Polaris’ lines ever since 2007. On the American market, the RZR lineup comprises no fewer than 16 variants, with prices ranging from $5,299 for the RZR 170 EFI to $25,699 for the RZR Pro XP 4.
